KodeGo, a Philippine-based coding bootcamp under Globe’s 917Ventures, announced in a media release that it is launching its latest program that will certify participants in the use of the Salesforce platform and allow them to secure jobs in top tech companies. This initiative is a continuation of its mission to elevate the skills of tech professionals and address the unemployment gap in the country.
In collaboration with Third Pillar, KodeGo will help students through an eight-week training program to land a job as a Salesforce administrator once they pass the certification process.
Salesforce, driving demand for IT professionals well-versed in the subject, is a leading cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) software solution. It is used by some of the largest tech companies globally for sales, service, marketing, collaboration, and analytics. Its award-winning features have driven the demand.
“We created this bootcamp as the demand for Salesforce administrators and developers is growing. We are confident that the skills gained by our students will open doors for them and increase their chances of getting hired by international companies that use the software,” Venture Builder of KodiGo Pierre Guyon said.

The bootcamp does not require any upfront fees to join and follows a “study now, pay later” scheme. Students will only start paying for the bootcamp once they get hired by KodeGo’s exclusive network of top companies in the Philippines, including Globe and 917Ventures’ portfolio of digital startups.
Moreover, the certification fees, as compared to similar programs ranging up to 200USD, will be covered by hiring companies at no cost to the students.
Within four weeks after graduation 91% of KodeGo’s students land a tech job, as the startup’s training programs on full-stack web development and data science have helped bridge the gap between the unfilled tech positions in top companies and the lack of technical skills among aspiring tech employees.
“The digital transformation brought by the pandemic has created opportunities for both tech companies and employees. Through KodeGo’s study now, pay later scheme and company matching services, we are able to produce quality tech talents that are capable of innovating in their respective placements,” said Vince Yamat, 917Ventures Managing Director.
KodeGo is one of the business ideas taken in by 917Ventures under its Velocity program for promising ventures.
